Watch Sweden defeat the team that was the original inspiration for the team that the Avs suffered a 4-1 loss against last night. While Sweden was able to dominate in the offensive zone, the Avs barely managed to display that they were actually trying to come back in that third period and that lack of defense is identical to the way Sweden guards Duck star Adam Banks. If you substititute "Colorado" for "Sweden" and "Teemu Selanne" for "Adam Banks," then you'll have a good idea of how last night's game went down.
Anyway, without further ado:
1. Peter Budaj
Darcy Tucker left the game last night after a nasty collision near the Avalanche bench. Apparently, he's on IR for about 4 weeks.
Daniel Tjarnqvist made his first appearance last night. Honestly, it wouldn't have made a difference had he not shown up.
Tomorrow night, the Avs take on the Blues at 9 ET. In the meantime, I'll try to find some other movie to relate to the eventual loss (win).
